  1. Joanie–it was nice to see you, but not under these sad circumstances. Losing a husband and best friend must be a terrible thing. Please try to reflect on the wonderful moments you had together and cherish them. You are definitely in our thoughts and prayers. I am sure you have a wonderful family and I know you have alot of friends to help you through these turbulent times. A friend from the past at Oswego Hospital.
